Service Studio 5.1 Help
Action Flow Editor
Service Studio provides you with a specific editor to define the action flow (Collection of elements that graphically implement the behavior of an action. You can have flow control elements (If, For Each, ..., End) and you can invoke other actions. Elements in an action flow are linked through Connectors.) of your actions (Implements your business logic. An action behavior is defined by its action flow. An action can handle local variables, input and output parameters.). This editor is called the Action flow editor and is divided into the following areas:
Tools tree: This is the left area of the Service Studio workspace. It provides a set of tools that can be dragged to your flow canvas to define the behavior of the action.
The tools are both elements that execute actions (built-in and user defined) and flow control tools. When a tool is dragged onto the flow canvas, a new element in the action flow is created.
Flow canvas: This is the central area of the Service Studio workspace where you drop the tools from the Tools tree to define the logic of your action. To see the properties of an action flow element, select it on the flow canvas and they'll be displayed in the Property window.
To define an action flow, drag and drop the tools, connect the created elements and define their properties.
The action flows always start with a Start element. Also, only one Start element is allowed in an action flow.
